This morning while at my computer, a mama deer and her twin speckled babies walked by the office window!! I didn't get the camera soon enough to get a really good picture, but if you double-click you can see the little guy pretty well!! Nice way to start the morning ~ but if those little duffers start nibbling on the hostas ~ it won't be such a happy story!!
The little 'Welcome' mat was a big success!! Actually, when they opened it, I wasn't sure ~ but her sister loved it!! And the sister's husband said 'that isn't just rug hooking, that's art"!! Well, you can only imagine how much I liked hearing that!!! And then this morning, there was a message on the answering machine that my friend left last night, saying how much she really loved it and that she hung it over a door just as you walk in her front door and that she would always think of us when she sees it!! PERFECT!! This is only the second piece of hooking I have given as a gift because you don't know how someone might perceive it ~ since my efforts were well received ~ I am a happy hooker!!
Dinner at Chez Francois was wonderful ~ it always is!! My husband had soft shell crab and lobster bisque, which he loves and I had lobster-stuffed zucchini blossoms and red snapper dredged in almond flour and a benedictine sauce!! And a scrumptious pomegranate martini ~ well, two, actually!! And always healthy, sorbet for dessert!! Along with a complimentary dessert wine!! Believe me ~ a good time was had by all!!!
Saturday evening, we (our lake friends and us) went out for Mexican food, and a couple of other stops before and after and then came back and sat on the rocks!! The stars were shining brightly and there were no mayflies/Canadian soldiers to "bug" us and we even saw a couple of shooting stars!! As one of our friends said "it was so celestial" ~ yes, it was!! Other than that, we had a quiet weekend, enjoying looking at the water and having some down time.
That's it for today ~ hope all is well your corners of the world!
